Very Good Single-Iron Jack Plane.
This is a Chapin-Stephens 16in long jack plane. It has a 1 3/4in wide tapered single iron made by Moulson Brothers. The plane is clean and crisp and has clearly seen little use, if any. The blade has some scattered pitting from sitting unused. The mouth is slightly opened, but in a very deliberate and well-done fashion. I'm willing to bet it was made like this. The unusual mouth combined with the plane's low height (only 2in) and its usually small iron (which does match any of the standard bench planes I find in the Chapin-Stephens catalog I have here) makes me thing the plane was made for some special use like what the catalog shows as a "boxmaker's plane" . IT's an interesting plane and it remains in excellent conditon. Regardless of whatever it was originally intended for, it will still work well today.

Excellent Small Reverse Ogee Molding Plane by Hathersich, Manchester.
The Hathersich company operated from 179-1851 according to Goodman. There isn't much variation in the mark to give away when this plane was made, but it's design, with the broad chamfers, deep gouge cuts, and pronounce cove not he step tell me it's on the very early side of the teem frame. One very interesting design detail is the fat that there is a "step" on both sides of the plane with the hand-hold centered on the body. It cuts a nice small reverse ogee or lamb's tongue profile 5/8in wide by 3/16in deep.. It has a boxed sole and an excellent blade without any pitting. The body is crisp and clean with no flaws.

Early Flat Ovolo Molding Plane b Hathersich, Manchester.
This plane was made by George Hathersich in Manchester, England between 1797-1843 according to Goodman. The plane exhibits design elements of early British planes including the deep cove on the step and heavy, flat chamfers. It has an especially steep middle pitch blade for hardwoods. The plane has been used quite a bit as evidenced by the short blade, but there is little wear and no damage. It's clearly been appreciated and well cared-for. While the blade is short there is some good useful life left in it. It's a common profile and a replacement blade will be easy to come up with without too much bother should you use up the original. An early, quite useful molder.

Early Flat Ovolo Molding Plane by Ts. Fairbairn.
This is a 3/5in wide flat ovolo molder with a clear maker's stamp at the toe "Ts.

The high wear point at the tip of the ovolo is boxed. It has a nice clean blade. it's a high quality, early molder by an unknown maker.
